Everyone wants a painless and easy approach when it comes to purchasing life insurance. That can actually be a reality if you know what to look for when shopping for life insurance. The painless part has every thing to do with the cost. Term life insurance is by far the least expensive of all forms of life insurance. Easy has everything to do with making a life insurance purchase that is simple and time saving. That points to purchasing insurance that requires no medical exam. These are called the non-medical limits by most insurance companies. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the non-medical limits get very restrictive as you get older. Life insurance companies need examinations to underwrite policies as we get older.
If painless and easy is your goal then it behooves you to shop for the largest face amount of life insurance that you can purchase without a physical exam. The medical insurance bureau is used by almost all life insurance companies to investigate the medical background of all of its applicants. The MIB may have medical information on an applicant that may eventually require a medical examination or a rejection of the application. Do not seek a non-medical insurance policy to hide a pre-existing condition. A future claim may be denied because of misrepresentation on the application.
Try the marketplace and research the non-medical limits. If you are in good health and have no pre-existing condition then a life insurance purchase without an exam is a definite time saver and will make life easy for you and the insurance company. Make sure that you divulge all of your medical history on the application as well as your primary care physician. Annual physical exams and regular medical check ups are viewed as a positive by life insurance underwriters. There you have it. You have enough information to implement a painless and easy strategy for your next term life insurance purchase.
